Tapers Section By David Lemieux

Welcome back to the Tapers' Section, where this week we'll hear music from 1977, 1978 and 1989.

The New Year's Eve show on 12/31/77 is often overshadowed by 12/29/77 (understandably so; that show rocks!), but there was plenty of good music on 12/31, including this big jam of Truckin'>Jam>Wharf Rat>Drums>Not Fade Away>Around and Around; One More Saturday Night>Casey Jones. There's a cut in Not Fade Away, but it's not too bad.

We've played you some 4/22/78 music from Nashville, and this week we have the start of the second set, featuring Lazy Lightning>Supplication, It Must Have Been The Roses, Estimated Prophet>Eyes Of The World. That's a bit of a rare second set Lazy Lightning>Supplication, but a good one nonetheless.

Back to more New Year's run music, with tunes from 12/28/89 in Oakland. This time we have the entire first set, featuring two of the bigger Bob jam vehicles, Stranger and Let It Grow, both excellent versions: Let The Good Times Roll, Feel Like A Stranger, Dire Wolf, Little Red Rooster, Ramble On Rose, Queen Jane Approximately, Just A Little Light, Let It Grow.

Thanks for joining us, and be sure to come back next week.

1989 link

The link is actually there--just a little hard to find--click on the phrase: "Thanks for joining us ..." it'll put you though

oh I don't know...

...just about all of 2008, 2009, and 2010...most of those are MIA and have been for some time. There could be various others as well. Finding out what's missing would just entail taking a glance week by week. Do you think you could get those restored? My understanding is they haven't been wiped from the servers...yet...

which Tapers Sections have missing links?

I'll see if I can get this addressed, though it being a holiday there may be a delay.

links missing

In addition to this week's snafus, many links are missing for previous week's (years) Taper's Sections...it would be swell if they were restored. As someone quoted the Pranksters in Blair's final blog "nothing lasts"...do I sound jaded or what?

Taper's Section Glitches

The link for the 1989 selection this week is not there. Also, the link for the previous two Taper's Section don't work, and the link disappeared for the Taper's Section from the week of December 31-January 6. All this when viewed on an iPhone, not sure if these issues exist on other formats. Thanks for any assistance.

**edit- The link for the 1989 selection is found by clicking on "Thanks for joining us, and be sure to come back next week". A little strange, but the music is there! The other glitches, however strange, still remain.
